Walk-ins and Beginners Welcome!

Join us on Wednesday afternoons for meditation with guided meditation instructor Kyoko Kimura. Kyoko specializes in Raja Yoga Meditation, a form of Hindu yoga intended for practitioners to achieve control over the mind and emotions. Findings from studies on the benefits of guided meditation go beyond reducing levels of stress and anxiety, and also include many beneficial physiological effects associated with lowered levels of stress and stimulation. We encourage anyone looking for an opportunity to mindfully engage in the healing and therapeutic effects of meditation to join us for our weekly meditation class!
